Why Don't We Do It In Our Sleeves

Update: Hmmm! Guess they decided it wasn't good to keep the video on Youtube. Click on the link to see it on their site.  I have found another site with some good products for teaching young children good hygiene: Germy Wormy
It's time to circulate this video again. I cringe whenever I hear someone in the media reminding people to "cover their coughs or sneezes". Excuse me, but even if you use a tissue your hands are going to be covered in germs. Watch the video and you'll learn why AND the correct technique. I love how they mixed in humor with the lesson.
The following is from a member of the company who is responsible for this great video:
"You can purchase a high resolution DVD of the movie that includes Spanish, French, Mandarin, and American Sign Language (soon to offer Japanese as well). Schools, hospitals, and businesses alike have found the DVD to be a great educational tool. The website is
www.coughsafe.com. "


Here's my latest germ video favorite:

I know! I see an untapped market and what perfect timing! Although, a nice neutral would be important . . .

if you could get a runway model with one it'd be the next big thing. The public is ready for it.

I changed my mind - a variety would be better than just neutrals.
-Paisley
-Tattooed
-Tie dyed
Then we need a good model/spokesperson . . .

Thanks for your enthusiasm about our video! We agree that the message "cover your cough" in the media is terribly misleading. Please let people know that they can purchase a high resolution DVD of the movie that includes Spanish, French, Mandarin, and American Sign Language (soon to offer Japanese as well). Schools, hospitals, and businesses alike have found the DVD to be a great educational tool. The website is www.coughsafe.com. Thanks!
